Family is truly a unique creature,
It can function as an effective teacher.
Each person involved, has plenty to learn,
Through words and actions, respect they may earn.
Sometimes arguments may get pretty loud,
That's because, they're all just so proud.
They better watch what they say,
Otherwise, they'll be lonely and grey.
This creature you should always feed,
You never know, when something you'll need.
The trick is to listen and sometimes talk,
Grab the creature, and go for a walk.
